Sept. 27, 2016

This fall, three new tenure-track faculty members joined Marquette Business, with unique backgrounds in strategic management, leadership and industrial economics. Learn a little about Drs. Kristie Rogers, Andrew Smyth and Dave Wangrow:

Dr. Kristie Rogers

Kristie RogersAssistant professor of management

Rogers joined Marquette after working for three years at the University of Kansas as an assistant professor. Specializing in organizational behavior and leadership, she has undertaken some unique qualitative research challenges in diverse and even unusual environments, including a prison, the Army’s Special Forces, an elite technology company, a small microbrewery and among female board members of publicly traded firms. Rogers is passionate about field-based research and partners with small and large organizations to address important management challenges. She received her Ph.D. from Arizona State University.

Dr. Andrew Smyth

Andrew SmythAssistant professor of Economics

An economist, Smyth is interested in experimental and emerging industries, and his research takes an in-depth look at what occurs when a particular market sector is still maturing. He has studied topics ranging from the early commercial aircraft industry, industrial organization and even commercial whalers of the 18th and 19th centuries. Smyth was previously a postdoctoral fellow at Chapman University in California; he earned his Ph.D. at Florida State University.

Dr. Dave Wangrow

Assistant professor of strategic management

Wangrow joins Marquette — and academia — after 27 years in the corporate world, most of which at Motorola as they built the cellular industry from the ground up. His teaching interests lie mainly in the areas of domestic and international strategy development and implementation, competitive strategy, and executive behavior and leadership. His research interests include managerial discretion, executive behavior and decision making, and strategic human capital. Wangrow has an educational background in electrical engineering, and earned his advanced degrees at the University of Chicago and the University of Kansas.
